Liberal Dissonance

Ann Coulter said that if it weren't for terrorism, liberals would hate Muslims. She didn't get a chance to explain why, since she was attacked by pie throwers just after mentioning it, but I assume that what she was getting at would be Muslim treatment of and attitudes toward women. Liberals are supposed to be the "womens liberation" group, yet Muslim women seem to be the least liberated innocents on the planet.

I just visited a weblog, Clarity and Resolve, which brought this point home with the inclusion of a Reuters article highlighting a couple of instances of violence against women in Iraq:

BAGHDAD (Reuters) - Aamal, a ministry consultant, shot dead. Wijdan, a women's rights activist and election candidate, murdered. Zeena, a businesswoman, kidnapped, shot and dumped on a highway in a headscarf she never wore.

Their crime? Wearing western clothes, having jobs or speaking out to make women's voices heard in efforts to rebuild Iraq, plagued by relentless violence, spiralling crime and creeping religious fundamentalism.

Many have been driven into their homes, out of schools and universities and off the streets. Leading women keep a black hijab on the peg by the door to wear when venturing outside. Women who never wore the headscarf, turn to it for safety.

So, with that in mind, I'd like to contribute a bit of American patriotism, and a flippant salute to all of the Muslim fundamentalist terrorists out there:

American Patriotism

American Bikini Salute

Thta's the problem when the middle-classes hi-jack class politics...it's easy to lose sight of who the enemies really are.
